The saint is a true person, Luigi Giussani once wrote, because the saint holds fast to God, and thus, to his heart’s ideal.  This exhibit looks at two ordinary women, whose lives were made great by following the greatness of their ideals.  In an age where finding yourself means cutting traditional ties, we witness how the dynamic of Faith, Obedience and Friendship led Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini and Mother Elizabeth Ann Seton to become America’s first saints.
